    Great to read an update about the white temple. We’ve not heard much about it since the quake. Thanks for letting us know we can still visit.

      Yep, it’s still open everyday! You just can’t go inside as they are repairing it.

    Awesome photos Dave. Glad to hear the temple is still open and it seems relatively sound after the earthquake.

      Hi Anna, it took some damage. But they are repairing it now.

    We were fortunate to have visited The White Temple on May 5th. and arrived back at our Guest House at 6pm just as the Earthquake struck.

      Lucky you to have seen the temple and then make it back as the earthquake struck. Glad you made it back safe!

    Nice update on what was one of the nicest things to do in Chiang Mai for a day trip. Good to know it’s still open.

      No problem. It’s actually just outside Chiang Mai in Chiang Rai. But you can do a day trip from Chiang Mai easily.

    I had a chance to visit this place twice, but passed both times. Now I regret not going. Hope they are able to restore inner access soon!

    Does the temple is open everyday to the public after the earthquake last March? Is it safe to visit the temple?

      Yes it’s still open. The unsafe interiors parts have been closed off. But as most of the impressiveness is on the outside you can still see the majority of the complex.
